Man Proposes

Looking ahead as best we can into the new year: lots of adventures planned. Best of all, to my mind, is lots more of the same.

• Ten trips planned already: skiing, spelunking, visiting colleges on both coasts, birding, a couple of literary tours . . .
• Clara begins piano lessons this month--looking towards that piano competency exam in a few years.
• Giles will leave home this fall for his second university year. Savannah College of Art and Design or Brooks Institute of Art? Which will it be?
• Therefore necessity will drive me to doing my own photography (yikes!).
• Everyone's running: a half-marathon for the Composer, 10K for the boys, and Clara, Bella, and I are going to do a 5K by April. Running shoes first, please.
• Heaven help us all, Daisy's getting an 1/8th size cello, and Clara will take on her first student!
• Bella in a soccer uniform this spring!
• And many, many, happy hours of sewing, I hope.

Oh, what a full year you have planned already! I feel sick just thinking of me eldest heading off to college!

Wish we lived closer...Clara could take on my daughter as well.

What a year!

Hope you'll take us along for the tours. Savannah is just lovely.

I cannot wait to hear about every single adventure you have planned--they all sound just great!

I'm so excited for the cello lessons! I earned my college money teaching violin lessons. I hope you will let us know how it goes. I'm sure it will be an adventure.

When I first saw your title,"Man Proposes", I was thinking proposals, weddings and such,(maybe a book quote was coming up) After reading your site my thoughts were corrected to the source of Proverbs 16:9. What truth for all of us to rest in this year. Yet another reason to love Him.

Our new pastor is coming from being a college minister in Savannah -at that very school I believe. Not sure what denomination you are, but given what I know of our new pastor their RUF group (Reformed University Fellowship) is probably pretty solid.

What an exciting year! Thank you so much for sharing peeks into your life and home and family. It's so helpful, especially for us younger mothers who can look ahead to where you're at and see how you accomplish it all with such grace and elegance.

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of Daisy with her cello! :)
